Antoineo Harris

RB | (0-0, 227) | Illinois
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Sat out 1998 for Prop 48. Carried 37 times for 214 yards and one touchdown in '99. Rotated with Rocky Harvey but did not start in 2000, led the team in rushing with 191-772-7 and also had three catches for 27 yards. Filled a similar role in '01, when he missed the last two regular-season games with a broken bone (radius) in his right wrist but returned for the Sugar Bowl. Before injury, rushed 169-629-6 and caught 3-10. In 12 games in '02, Harris rushed 278-1,330-8 and caught 16-129.

Positives: North-south runner who generally runs with good lean and adequate vision. Runs hard and will finish his runs at times. Uses his blocks well and has good leg drive. Solid workout numbers. Good special-teams player.

Negatives: Runs too high and doesn't break tackles because feet stop on impact, which has caused some fumble problems. Is unable to make moves to create his own hole and has average change-of-direction ability. Lacks explosion as an outside runner and doesn't have initial burst. Will block but doesn't face up and has average hands.

Summary: Lack of speed hurts his chances, but he was productive in his only year as team's full-time starter.
